#2230: Marutai Kuroma-yu Tonkotsu Kumamoto Ramen

Here’s one the folks at Washoku Explorer sent as a gift with their tonkotsu explorer kit. This one looks really good from the picture – I’ve reviewed the bowl version of this in the past… Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Unsure whether it contains pork or not. To prepare, boil noodles in 500ml water for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents. stir and enjoy!

One of the two bindles of noodles.

A dry base sachet.

Lots of powder.

A liquid sachet.

Oily liquid.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added chashu pork belly, hard boiled egg, sushinori, spring onion, kizami shoga, kikurage, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts and shichimi togarashi. The noodles came out pretty well; a little tougher than I expected but still very nice. The broth ended up a little on the bland side which was a surprise since I liked the bowl version very much. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.  JAN bar code 4902702001223.

  1. I’ve been eating this noodles for a while now and I’ve learnt to use less water otherwise the broth becomes too diluted. I will also crack an egg into the noodles at the end. The liquid yolk and noodle combo is the best thing ever!
